Network Rail has joined digital Shout and the wider rail industry to remind the public that mental health support is just a text message away. Make a Connection, encourages people to text the bespoke keyword ‘Journey’ to 85258 to access the Shout service for free and confidential mental health support, 24/7.
It forms part of the rail industry’s efforts to help reduce suicides on the network by engaging with the public upstream and signposting them to mental health support services at the earliest opportunity.
